GOD, DO I MISS YOU

IN MY BUSY LIFE?

Do I miss you God, each morning,

     As I hurry down the street -

Or is it you who smiles at me,

     Through faces that I meet?

 

Is it you who quietly speaks to me

     Through people in our town

Or is your quiet voice just lost –

     In traffic noise it’s drowned?

 

God, did I miss you then, this morning

     When I had no time to stop?

Did you see me racing madly

     As I went from shop to shop?

 

It’s probable I missed your birds

     Who rejoice in their creation

For I had no time to hear them sing

     As I hurried to the station.

 

When I meet someone who’s new to me

     Of another faith or creed

I’ll remember that you never turned

     Your back on those in need.

 

When someone wants to speak to me,

     But I’ve hardly any time,

I’ll tell myself that time, dear God,

     Is yours and never mine.

 

So please dear God accompany me

     As I start a brand new week.

I mustn’t doubt that you are seen

     By everyone I meet.

 

If I give a smile and kindly word,

     It’s you they’ll really see.

So help me God to always let

     Your light reflect through me.
